This or That

Basic Structure:

  • Have participants stand in the centre of the room.
  • A statement that has two possible responses—agree or disagree—is read out loud.
  • Depending on whether they agree or disagree with this statement, participants move to one side of the room or the other (establish which side means which beforehand).
  • From that spot, students take turns defending their positions.

Variations:

  1. Can be used as a “True or False” game when presenting facts about a topic.
  2. Can be used as a “Me or Not Me” icebreaker where participants pick a side depending on whether or not the statement describes them, from trivial facts to deep truths (for example, “I like gummy bears” or “I have been bullied”)
